Bible Study Notes on Hebrews 11 – 20190728

Hebrews 11:1  "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." One of my first memory verses when I was in college.  Our faith in God is as good as the actual thing He has promised because of who He is.  I still haven't gotten to the place of …
